in cairo. as a consequence of the video. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted of course by the video. what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. megyn: joining me now, simon rosenberg, president and founder of ndn think tank and former advisor to president clinton. mark these send, fellow at american enterprise institute and former speechwriter for president george w. bush. mark, what the intel services are telling us now is that not only was what she said not true, but this administration knew it wasn't true and they knew it for several days. not only did they know this was a terrorist attack, but, they knew it had been listed officially inside the government as a terrorist attack. that they were searching for the suspects. that it was an attack on u.s. soil, which a u.s.
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. american violence is beginning to show signs of slowing, but tensions remain high. the state department is evacuating all family members and non-u.s. government personnel from tunisia and the sudan. we have a reporter on the ground in tunisia. >> reporter: shannon, no wonder the state department is concerned. we are back from the area around the u.s. embassy compound here in tunis. we scpaw heard amazing things. today, the compound is secure, tukneesian military very much present. but we are told they were nowhere to be found during key moments on friday, as protesters scaled the wall, mashed up the place before they were driven out. more shocking, is what we saw next door at the american school, that's a k-12, where over 600 kids of foreign parent, including 100 american children. take a look. at noon on friday, the playground at this tukneesian school would have been filled with young kids, some of them american. then the administrators got word that a violent protest was happening across the street at the u.s. embassy and the protesters could be comi
this year. libya, where four americans were murdered at the consulate in benghazi last week gets a little over $13 million in financial assistance, and egypt where we saw people burning the american flag, they accept more than $1.5 billion from the united states, and the obama administration would like to keep that money flowing, sending secretary of state hillary clinton to make the case to congress today where the administration's getting more and more pushback on this issue. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane who's a former vice chief of stash for the army and a fox news military analyst. general, more and more we're hearing republican lawmakers, and we had senator rand paul last week saying it's time to put a stop to this. why would we be funneling billions of dollars worth of aid into countries where we are seeing scenes like this? what's your thought? >> well, listen, your viewers and anybody looking at those guys on the wall and burning the american flag would have an understandable reaction, and i can certainly understand the frustration on the part of congress,

[cheering] >> i have come here to cairo to seek a new beginning, between the united states and muslims around the world. that is what i will try to do today, to speak the truth as best i can. humbled by the task before us and firm in my belief that the interests we share as human beings are far more powerful than the forces that drive us apart. america respects the right of all peaceful and law-abiding voices to be heard around the world, even if we disagre
. president obama has not called the deadly raid on our consulate in benghazi, libya a terrorist attack even though some in his administration and secretary of state hilary clinton going so far to say that it was linked to al-qaida. >> they are working with other violent extremist to undermine democratic transitions in africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> the president's press secretary jay carny was asked why his boss hasn't called it a terrorist attack. just because he doesn't say it out loud doesn't mean he hasn't acknowledged it was terrorist. the president talked eloquently at about the attack that killed four americans in the general assembly. it is holely unacceptable to repond to the video with violence regardless of the reason. and the republican national committee has a newad out. critizing the president calling the attack bumps in the road. >> it is serious situation over there and i said what the american people and what the press ought to be asking. and i think it is agredgous what is happen nothing the media asking this president. what happened over in libya? what happen
other americans in benghazi, libya. joining us from washington louise gutierrez a member of the house intelligence committee. congressman, what say you? number one i'm mourning the death of a wonderful ambassador and three other americans condemning their death at the hands of extremist hands in libya. and and the same token i don't want to take a tragedy in libya and try to make political points out of it look, ambassador stevens was our uni have to the insurgent group before we got rid of colonel can qaddafi. in other words he was sent there by america to help foster democracy. which makes this even more ironic and greater tragedy. he understood and worked and he was then promoted to ambassador. america has a deep interest in making sure they have a keen relationship with the new people. i remember when senator mccain and others went theels. let's arm the rebels. while you may not have seen us overtly in terms of america's involvement, i recall that the first missile sent that sent qaddafi to his death were sent by america. and i think it was a good moment for america. >> bill: all

about the attacks in benghazi, it looks that military attacks. it doesn't look like demonstrators crawling all over the wall like in cairo. it looked like something of a different nature. we need to understand and remember that in a massacre that was killed last night sided with the rebels against the government. he was a symbol of openness and democracy in this government's commitment to see a better day for the middle east, which is one of the reasons why he was targeted so specifically last night. megyn: monica, today if you read the press, are questioning why are embassy would be issuing a statement that there is no question that the film sounds incendiary. but in america we believe in free speech. that is one of the fundamental principles of our country. they are questioning why are embassy would feel compelled to weigh in on this statement by private individual that many in the muslim world find offensive. but we in america believe in free speech. >> yes, that's exactly right. that is part of the reason why this was so appalling. when the outrage started to build, they doubl
that this was a spontaneous attack. in reaction to that video, especially since the consulate in benghazi had just been hithf( it's just too many coincidences here. do i believe that they were targeting this ambassador at that time? probably not. i do believe that they thought someone senior was there. >> meanwhile, the white house says it asked google, which even youtube, to look at that video, make sure it met google standards. that's a video that the obama administration says caused the unrest in libya and elsewhere because muslims found it disrespectful to mohammed. google says the video is within its guidelines and will stay on youtube, although google did take it down in countries like india and indonesia where the video was against that country's law. google also took it down in libya and egypt because of the sensitive situations there. >> thank you very much. it's not just american protesters, the middle east are also furious -- chanting death to israel. so what does this mean for our strongest ally in the region? joining us to talk about it, deputy knesset speaker, denny, author. welcome. great to h
at the consulate during the day in benghazi but they do not despite reporting there was no sizable or significant demonstration at the time the attack unfold at 9:30 p.m. given the precision of the attack, advance surveillance has not been laid out. it is said they took the attack from the inspiration of events in cairo and cairo cannot be ignored as the inspiration. this does not mean the crowd demonstrated against the movie suddenly and spontaneously turned violent. officials say the c.i.a. has assessed or did assess the security situation in eastern libya and it was deteriorating before the attacks based on the four attacks going in june on diplomatic and western targets, a report we brought to you on friday. >>shepard: what explains this disconnect? >>reporter: the disconnect seems to be semantics. we reported today based on the intelligence source on the ground in libya the assault on the consulate was with no warning and included fire from two locations. we had rpg's and mortar fire, include one that hit the roof and direct and indirect fire. we are told there were two waves to the assault

to be cautioused on what the president believes about benghazi. this is a president who said in the new york times, that the muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds he has heard at sunset. i guess you have your own opinion of what it sounds like. but it makes one wonder what the president believes about the mushim world. you talk about practicing religion, i wonder if ambassador stevens gets to survive because of a youtube video. it is all a red herring and this doesn't happen on 9/11. and it reminds me, steve and reminds me the president and administration and military trying to characterize the fort hood massacre not far from where i am here in dallas as workplace violence. that is minimizing extremism and secretary of state was a small band of people. if that is a small band, i don't want that on my doorstep. >> steve: no. michael goodwin said whose side are you on? he meets with the muslim brotherhood and yet when netanyahu is in town he doesn't meet with him. >> it was a big story that was lost in the aftermath of the killings at the embassy. when the president said i don't have
